Giants fall in 10th
April 11, 2014, 05:00 AM By Josh Dubow The Associated

SAN FRANCISCO — Tony Campana hit an RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to their first back-to-back wins of the season with a 6-5 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday night.

Cliff Pennington had two RBIs and scored the winning run for the Diamondbacks, who won the final two games of the series. Miguel Montero also drove in two runs for Arizona.

Michael Morse hit a two-run double that gave the Giants the lead, but an error by third baseman Pablo Sandoval allowed the tying run to score in the eighth and San Francisco fell in extra innings to lose their first home series since last August against Boston.

Pennington hit a one-out single off Yusmeiro Petit (0-1) in the 10th and then stole second base on a 2-2 pitch to Campana with two outs. Campana then blooped a single just over the outstretched glove of second baseman Brandon Hicks to score the go-ahead run.

J.J. Putz (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win and Addison Reed got three outs for his third save in as many chances.

The Diamondbacks failed to score in the seventh after loading the bases with no outs, but got the tying run an inning later on Sandoval’s bad throw.

With runners on first and second and two outs in the eighth, Campana hit a slow grounder to Sandoval, who rushed his throw to first. The ball sailed over Brandon Belt’s head allowing Gerardo Parra to score the tying run from second.

The Giants held a pregame ceremony honoring their former home, Candlestick Park, which is set to be torn down later this year.
